thank you very much for inviting me to the BAUHAUS-INSPIRED DESIGN event at the HUGO BOSS store in Basel. It was super nice to meet the Hugo Boss Team and I got to see lots and lots of nice pieces from the fall/winter collection and also some really nice pieces from the BOSS WOMEN capsule collection.
the food and beverages were very nicely served and tasted delicious. the water was served in those fancy vintage water dispensers, I have no clue what the correct term for that is. in case you know please leave a comment below. I heard that they were especially rented from a collector just for that very event. I had a very tasty refreshing home made lemonade, a seasonal mushroom soup and delicious chocolate, that I never thought I would like as it was made with olive oil. I was really happy that I was brave enough to try it – I think I had at least three or four pieces. it was delicous, big UP for the catering from ZH!
so a couple of weeks ago I was invited to see the mechanical ballet and the new BAUHAUS exhibition at the VITRA design museum. in case you wanna know more about it click here >>
today I had a look at the catalogue of the exhibition and I saw lots of nice things. the book is also great to present heels, check out those gorgeous blue heels – they are to die for!
now these are some of the pieces that I like from the current fall/winter collection. I totally like the powdery wool winter coat, the red dress from the window and my biggest favorite: the blue heels.
and now lets talk about the gorgeous fall/winter capsule collection by JASON WU for BOSS WOMEN. there were some of the pieces in the shop to have a look at, unfortunately this collection will not be sold in Basel. but I m sure that the ladies who wanna buy something from this collection, they will find a way to get it in a shop that sells it : ) more about the shops and where to find the collection on the HUGO BOSS website.
these two pieces are inspired by ANNI ALBERS the famous german/american textile artist and printmaker. the skirt and the coat are very much related to a carpet that ANNI once designed. JASON WU designed the BOSS WOMEN capsule collection and they found an italian family business that made the tweed for them. another stunning piece are the black, grey, orange boots EMERALD BOOTIE F with a very special detail on the heel that I unfortunately forgot to capture but you can see them here >> I was only able to find the black and white ones but you can really see the nice detail on the heel.
thank you for the give away – I love it and I just made some space on my coffee table. it is indeed the perfect coffee table book. that was it from the event in Basel. X

the best thing about fall is that I can enjoy a hot bath tub again, I love to take baths and soak in the tub for almost an hour : ) so yesterday I repurchased my beloved DRESDNER ESSENZ bath scents, they are amazing, for only 1.50 CHF you have a lovely smelling either relaxing or stimulating bath scents, with bubbles or without. I am not sponsored by them : ) I just really love their products. I will soon get more into details about their bath scents.
mix and match, is my favorite thing to do, and I am sure you can remember this orange skirts from previous outfits before. and thats what fashion is all about for me, it should be versatile. I love to wear my clothes in different ways and love how things look more casual or more elegant. see the different outfits at the very end. HAPPY TUESDAY and enjoy wearing your skirts and tops. X
TOP AND SKIRT – different ways to wear them
I found something nice – some super comfy black wool pants! as I sit a lot in front of the computer it is very important for me to wear comfortable things. so when I saw these pants I knew I had to have them. todays look is a mix bewtween elegant and casual. the heels could be easily replaced with a nice pair of flats.

“my newest things form a perfect outfit together!”
at last weeks press event in zurich I have seen the upcoming ESPRIT fall collection (aawww, so many pretty things!!) and as a little thank you we were given a giftcard. so when I had a minute I walked into the ESPRIT shop in Basel – I think this shop is by far the most beautiful shop in the whole city because of its interior and the massive stairs bringing you to the upper levels – so I couldnt believe my eyes when I saw that they were already starting with SALE – it took me 5 minutes and I had a gorgeous white silky long sleeve top and a white cotton waffle skirt and everything fit me perfectly! thank you ESPRIT!
at zalando.ch I found these gorgeous massive RAVEL heels – they look really insane but I can tell you that these shoes are way more comfortable than little stiletto heels 🙂 and because of the platform they dont feel to be so high! stay tuned for my spring summer special where I am going to show these shoes in detail!
I found this sweet white clock clutch bag at C&A in Basel – isnt is cute? I already showed you this bag here >> and it was indeed the perfect bag to visit BASEL WORLD! but not only that, I think it matches perfectly with the other items. an overall white look with a view black statements – I am ready for SPRING SUMMER 2014!

Are you all ready for Spring Summer Season? Are you ready to wear your slingback- and peeptoepumps? Well, I am NOT! And thats why I was very happy to see the ALESSANDRO PEDIX collection and the new TWEEZERMAN SoleMate Tools! In Switzerland they stock them at MANOR, GLOBUS, JELMOLI and AMAVITA but I am sure you can find these products in your country aswell.
My main problems are my dry feet and heels. So the pedix FEET Heel Smoothing Stick is perfect for that! The product claims: “Its the ideal treatment for targeted relief of dry, cracked heels. Active ingredients like Panthenol, Allantoin and Urea immediately care for the skin and protect against new formation callus.” I have started to use this stick every other night and I can already feel a difference the morning after.
What do I do before I apply the stick? I use the new TWEEZERMAN SoleMate Tools. It consists of 2 tools: a File and a Smoother. Soak your feet in lukewarm water, then scrub with Tweezerman’s Sole Mate Foot File and Smoother.
Have you heard about the pedix FEET Purifying Energy Pads?
The product claims: “These Purifying Energy Pads for the feet boost foot care, stimulate a feeling of well-being and support a good nights sleep. Place pads on bottom of feet and wear as you sleep. Remove in the morning! The energy pads contain natural acetic acids and tourmaline, which, according to traditional Chinese Medicine, are said to encourage the elimination of metabolic waste products and environmental toxins via our intenral cleansing organs. According to TCM, all organs, muscles and body functions are reflected in the feet of every individual in so-called reflex points.”
The box contains 14 stickers and herbbags for a 7 day treatment. I started 2 days ago and I am really amazed by the effect it has to my feet. When I apply the herbbags at night, they are dry and have a rather light beige color. In the morning when I remove the pads, the herbbag is rather wet and turned almost black. So something is happening over night!
have a look at this reflex zone chart and apply the pads where you think you can need some extra energy!
so far I am very happy with these products and I will continue to use them until my feet look amazingly clean and soft! Soon I will show you the new Alessandro “Très chic” nailpolishes and will feature everything in a “Spring Summer Shoe Special” – stay tuned! xx
my friend Ania used to work for this brand. and to be honest before that I didnt know the brand at all. too bad as they dont have a shop in switzerland. hopefully soon!! so of course when I was in London during the Fashionweek I had to visit the LK BENNETT shop. I visited the one at ROYAL EXCHANGE and I asked the shopassistant if I could take some photos for my blog of me wearing their shoes. I left her my card and she promised to get back to me as soon as possible. and infact she did and I got permission to shoot in their shop the next day. thanks so much again!
RILEY thats the name of the heel I fell in love with – it comes in 3 colors – rose – silver and black – but of course I am more a fan of the lighter colors and I prefere the rosa or silver as theses shoes are perfect for spring summer!
